Western New York fans of Bravo TV’s Real Housewives of New Jersey want to know Dina Manzo’s side of the story when it comes to the rift with sister Caroline. On Sunday’s Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion part two, Caroline Manzo blamed Teresa Giudice for the rift between her and younger sister Dina Manzo. When asked by host Andy Cohen who or what was the cause of the estrangement between the sisters, Caroline replied, “Do you really want to know? I’m looking at it,” and with tears in her eyes shot a deadly glare at castmate Teresa Giudice.
Dina Manzo, who left the Real Housewives of New Jersey halfway through season two, is godmother to Teresa Giudice’s youngest daughter. Since leaving the show, Dina has been mum on all things Housewives, focusing her attention on husband Tommy, daughter Lexie, her charity Project Ladybug, and her new show on HGTV, Dina’s Party.
Manzo took to her blog last night to discuss the strained relationship with sister Caroline. In an attempt to put an end to the media attention focused on the Manzo, Laurita and Giudice families, Manzo had this to say:
I feel bad that my relationship with my sister and her family is strained, but I can assure you that one day it will be back to the way it was. I don’t like fighting, I don’t like drama, I don’t like confrontation, I don’t agree with ganging up on someone (one of the other reasons why I left season 2) and I don’t need to share anymore than that. I am not on this show anymore, I didn’t sign on for opening up every aspect of my life to the world for the rest of my life when I signed that Bravo contract.
As far as I’m concerned I’ll keep doing what I’m doing and try my best to stay out of the fray. THIS IS THE LAST I WILL DISCUSS ANY OF THIS. I am so happy filming what I love to do, planning parties and decorating has it’s fair share of drama but no one is hurting anyone and that kind of drama is just fine with me. I’m completely focused on my new venture and yes, I’m going to use this opportunity for a shameless plug too. Tune into “Dina’s Party” on HGTV every Sat at 10pm est. I DIDN’T sell this story for THOUSANDS of dollars but Mama didn’t raise no fool either ; ) PEACE OUT!! xo
